Infocom Cabinet: Miscellaneous: INFO-MOVE
Collection infocomcabinet; softwarehistory
A collection of digitized scans from a large cache of documents related to the game publisher Infocom, Inc. of Cambridge, MA. Assembled by Steven Meretzky of Infocom.
During his time at Infocom, Steve Meretzky meticulously gathered thousands of pages of notes, journals, maps, memos, forms and other printable materials related to all aspects of Infocom, and kept them in his basement for decades. During the GET LAMP production, Jason Scott scanned in roughly 9,000 pages of these documents across a number of months, borrowing the materials from Steve and scanning them as quickly as possible, at around 600dpi. From these scans, a portion was used in the GET LAMP movie to illustrate various scenes and descriptions by interviewees.
This item is a collection of documents related to the moving of Infocom, Inc. from its first major home of 55 Wheeler Street in Cambridge to 125 Cambridgepark Drive.
